Why do women say they want a good guy and end up dating the same old jerks that are abusive or just plain aholes? Or is it that they want a good guy but refuse to give them the time of day because they can't get past the jerks?

We really do want good guys, we just tend to date jerks a lot. That's because jerks are so good at attracting women while pretending not to be jerks. The guy I like right now is a genuinely nice guy and I know that because I've been friends with him for a long time. I can't believe he likes me back because nice guys never show interest in me, but I hope he asks me out soon because a genuinely nice guy is the most attractive thing ever. I think jerks are just more apt to be upfront about their interest in women because they don't care as much about rejection as nice guys do.1
